The Master of Biotechnology Research Extensive program is designed for scientists who wish to increase their technical and research skills in core areas of biotechnology, and to obtain a more extended laboratory immersion than is available in the existing three semester MBiotech.
The extended program will also provide a strong preparation for entry into a PhD program.
For your 1.5 years of full-time studies, you'll select from more than 30 courses, allowing you to tailor your studies to suit your interests and career goals.
Choose electives in molecular genetics, food microbiology, entrepreneurship and strategy, intellectual property, drug discovery and development, immunology and infectious diseases, and more.
Through an independent research project, you'll increase your technical and research skills by working with the university's researchers and academics or in an industry setting. You'll also have the opportunity to participate in internships, placements and international study options that focus on research and development, commercialisation, marketing and the business of science.
With more than 400 biotechnology companies and some 600 medical device companies in Australia alone, graduates are highly sought after for roles in health, agriculture, diagnostics, the environment, forestry, law and commerce.
